Rob Ray @ dorkbot Chicago!

Electronic artist Rob Ray rides his water bike out of the militarized salt flats of Wendover, Utah to return to Chicago and present alternative energy technologies for electronic artworks! Ray (the former organizer of dorkbot Chicago and DEADTECH electronic arts center) will explain the technical, fiscal, and creative implications of alternative energy technologies on sound, video, and interactive artworks at the August dorkbot Chicago meeting. He may even also describe the subversive potential of reprogramming ATM machines with an "under-the-hood" tour of the ATM kiosk construction, electronic card-reader and push-button interaction systems, and movie and video game creation.

What is a "dorkbot"?! The idea of the international dorkbot network is "people doing strange things with electricity" and meeting in informal, friendly environments to discuss their projects. These projects could include hardware hacks, New Media Art projects, creative code, circuit bent musical instruments or wild DIY garage science!
